On June 25th, Dr. Marilyn Brown gave an overview of the methodology and preliminary findings of Drawdown Georgia to the Michigan Public Service Commissioners (MPSC) and a few dozen stakeholders. Brown’s presentation was part of a day spent discussing emerging climate technologies and potential pilot programs for the state of Michigan.
With a population of about 10 million and an electric grid that has many similarities to the grid in Georgia, the MPSC and stakeholders were quite interested in Drawdown Georgia’s electric sector findings. They were also interested in the Forest and Land Use sections, as 50% of Michigan’s land is covered by forests.
